Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

In Vierlas, 10 miles upriver from Cascante and just into the region of Aragón, One hundred and thirty acres of vineyard located on a unique quaternary gravel deposit called La Lombana was acquired in its entirety through dozens of individual transactions during the late 1990s. A fruit-forward style is the objective from a blend predominated by estate Syrah, Tempranillo and Garnacha (with smaller percentages of Graciano and Petit Verdot), the wine being aged a scant three months in a mixture of new and used French oak. Spice and sweet fruit abound on the nose and palate, framed by Guelbenzu's reliable sense of fruit purity.

Great color; Dark berry and pepper flavors jump off(on) the palate; only flaw is the anti-climactic finish. One of the most complex and impressive $10 wines I've ever tasted.
